The latest murder came at around 1am today after police were called to reports of shots fired in Dalston, east London. Officers attended and found a seriously injured man, believed to be aged in his 30s. Paramedics tried to save him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Marcus Barnett, borough commander for Hackney and Tower Hamlets Police, tweeted in response to the killing: “This must stop. When will this stop? More lives needlessly lost, more families devastated, more hurt and pain in communities.

This surely is the time for more cohesion, a coming together as one, a commitment to stand against such horrendous behaviour and a stand to say enough.

“Policing is one small part of resolving this and this needs everyone to take responsibility. If you know of crime happening, people carrying weapons to hurt and kill and people that are vulnerable and in danger – call it out.” 

A force spokesman said: “Officers are also working to establish the exact nature of the man’s injuries. A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.”

No one was arrested. Just over six hours earlier police were called at 6.40pm on Friday to reports of a fight in Harold Wood, east London.
